Epson Stylus Photo R1800 review: Epson Stylus Photo R1800


Excellent color photo quality; relatively speedy; CD- and DVD-label printing.

High-maintenance nozzles; Epson makes you look elsewhere for top-of-the-line black-and-white photo quality.

A very solid medium-format printer with a couple of quirks.

Epson Stylus Photo R1800


With good or better quality for text and graphics, along with surprisingly good speed for business applications, the Epson Stylus Photo R1800 ($550 street) isn't necessarily strictly for photos. Even so, you can easily justify using it as a dedicated...

I intended to write a detailed review of the Epson-Stylus-Photo-R1800-Printer, but I don't foresee getting the time to properly write this review in the near future. I do want to answer the "Which printer are you using?" question and for that reason...

I would buy this printer again.

Epsonâ-'s Stylus Photo R1800; A New 13â-- Wide UltraChrome Ink Consumer Printer


The many shades of brown in the raw wood walls of this far north ghost town as well as the shades of spring grass in the foreground and fir trees in the background all reproduce with excellent fidelity in this print made with the Epson Stylus Photo R1800.

Epson Stylus Photo R1800


The Epson Stylus Photo R1800 sets the standard for versatile, high-performance, large-format desktop photo printing. It's speedy and it produces beautiful prints. It doesn't get any better than this, and certainly not for this price.

Whereas the Stylus Photo 2200 uses a CMYKlclm (CMYK plus light cyan, light magenta) ink set, the R1800 uses red and blue instead of the two light colors, offering a broader gamut range and a bit more saturation of extremely bright colors. Thanks to...

Epson Stylus Photo R1800 review


Epson's new photo printer delivers

The R1800 is a safe choice for enthusiast and semi-pro photographers who want to break into A3-sized printing

PC Plus review: Epson Photostylus R1800


The R1800 is a very good colour photo printer, but a little less convincing for black-and-white and fine art printing. It's overkill for a home office, but if photography is a serious hobby, this is a serious printer that will fulfill most of your needs.

Product Specifications

Taking Epson's award-winning technology one step further, the Epson Stylus Photo R1800 quickly creates large, archival quality glossy and matte photos worthy of display. Experience the rich, true-to-life colors and subtle detail that's evident in every image. It's all possible with Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss Inks, plus an industry leading resolution and ink droplet size - the same innovative features that made the Epson Stylus Photo R800 a resounding success. This printer's impressive 8-color individual ink system, which incorporates red and blue inks, means you get a wider color gamut for incredibly vivid photos. Its separate matte and photo black ink cartridges are integrated into the system as well, so you get the deepest, darkest blacks on matte paper, and brilliant results on glossy paper automatically. Finally, the unique gloss optimizer makes glossy prints look like they came from a traditional photo lab. And, since the inks are pigment-based, you can be confident the color and detail will remain true for up to 200 years. The Epson Stylus Photo R1800 delivers studio quality results on a wide variety of media and in eight popular borderless sizes - up to 13-inches wide, as well as panoramics up to 44-inches long. Best of all, the Epson Stylus Photo R1800 speeds through every project - so you can quickly print stacks of high-quality photos. And, its expertise goes well beyond the art of photographic prints. This photo printer makes it easy to add that special touch to your portfolio with professional quality printing on ink jet printable CDs and DVDs.
